Top picks: week 12

Hello again, remember me? It's funny - I usually get more blog stuff done on my days off but this weekend was definitely an exception to the rule. I hope you all had a lovely long weekend. I didn't get today off even though I work in an office but at least I got yesterday off which is more than I would have got if I were still working in retail!

So, on to my top picks this week. I seem to be having a bit of a dry spell with fashion this week as I found it quite difficult to find more than the five items below. But aren't they all lovely?

I'm loving the classic cut of this skirt. It's just the right length for me. I reckon it would go with everything all year round. And speaking of lengths, these Topshop shorts actually look like a decent length. It's nice to see some shorts that don't resemble hot pants (there I go sounding like a grandma again). They're another piece that I think would be versatile to wear all year round. 

Now this bicycle necklace may just have to make it's way into my collection. It's such a kitsch cartoon style and I don't own many pink things. £7 is a pretty good price considering it's from Accessorize. I'll have to keep an eye out for this. 

I love everything about this River Island jubilee dress. The cut, the print, the colour and the fact that it is no where near as obvious that it's a dress for the jubilee. That way you could wear it all year round! I'm also liking this cute overnight bag from Yumi but it's a tad too expensive for me. I'll just gaze upon its beauty instead. 

What have you found in the shops this week?

  1. Great picks. I tried that dress on yesterday but it didn't quite fit right. I love the necklace. I know exactly what you mean about short lengths! In sick of seeing shorts that look quite cute online only to discover you'd be able to see my bum cheeks in them! Not a good look on me! X

    1. It's not even a good look on skinny people - I've seen far too many bum cheeks so far this summer, lol! :) x

  2. I love all of these! I am always on the look out for clothes with more respectable hemlines! The dress is beautiful x

    1. I've never liked things too short - only a small percentage of people (with no meat on them!) can get away with it and I'm definitely not one of them! :) x
